Anthony Silver suffered three broken bones in his face and injuries to his eye, including a damaged jaw and misaligned teeth which will require a brace to correct. He is currently undergoing further tests. He says that he must travel to London to have a specialist operation to repair the damage.

Mr Silver is appealing for witnesses who may seen the assault; police believe that the incident happened between 11.45pm on Saturday 16 March and 12.30am on Sunday 17 March.

In a statement released to Concrete, Norfolk Police said: “Enquiries led officers to arrest a man on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm. The man was taken to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre for questioning and released on bail until next month while officers continue with their enquiries.”
